How Wolves Change Rivers

Those of you who know me from way back know I am a big fan of wolves, and of preserving them and increasing their numbers in the wild. I learned to love them when we raised them in the back yard. I would never do that now; I believe it to be ecologically and morally a very very bad idea, but I’m glad I got to experience these amazing creatures so intimately growing up as a child and teen.

This video — probably the most impactful nature video I have EVER seen, in only 4 1/2 minutes, shows reasons you should care about wolf populations that I never even knew existed: far beyond simply controlling deer populations. I was utterly astounded by this piece.
